Look For Heated Races

San Francisco, CA — According to the non-partisan Field Poll, 57 year old Tom Campbell has a six point lead in his effort to defeat California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer.

Campbell has 28 percent of the vote as compared to 22 percent for former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina. Assemblyman Chuck DeVore has but nine percent support.

At the same time 40 percent of the Republicans polled have yet to make a decision on who they will vote for November 8.

On the flip-side Boxer may in for the race of her life according to the poll which shows both Campbell and Fiorina in a dead heat with her for the state’s junior senatorial seat.

According to the Sacramento Bee, Poll Director Mark DeCamillo comments, “It’s clear the tenor of political discourse has changed in California since Republican Scott Brown pulled off an upset victory in the Massachusetts Senate race in January.” And he added, “It’s not if the Democrats will lose Congressional seats in November, it’s how many.”
